Hi. I have struggled with chronic widespread pain and chronic fatigue for three years, now diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. I have started on Methotrexate so I can be weaned off steroids, but the consultant appointments are so far apart I have no place to go for advice. My weight has ballooned and is getting me down. I have been pretty inactive now for two years. Although I often feel too tired after a day's work, I understand that exercise can be helpful for Fibromyalgia - but how much is too much, and what has worked best for others? My pain is mainly in the shoulders and backs of knees, but also rib pain if I breathe deep.
Also has anyone found vitamin supplements helpful? My mum bought me a 'natural' supplement called GOPO, which is Rosehip with vitamin C, but not sure if I should try it.
